FO Friday: Pinky Pink Rose Ruffled Scarf

IMG_2969(rev 1)

I bought just two skeins of Cascade 220 in Heathered But Still Very Pink, and this was the perfect project.  I’ve worn it a lot and it attracts lots of compliments. It even looks good on my gap-tooth Julian.  (He said, “This picture isn’t for the INTERNET, is it??”  Shhhh, don’t tell.)

Project: Pinky Pink Rose Ruffled Scarf

Pattern: Ruffled and Ruched Scarf

Designer: Pam Powers

Available: $7 on Ravelry

Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Heathers

Although the yarn has softened a bit with washing and wearing, it is still a touch scratchy for my taste — if I make this pattern again, I will definitely select softer yarn. I enjoyed the pattern (even if ruching makes for interminable knitting).  The rose is brilliant — usually I find crocheted flowers to be superior to knitted ones, but this rose is fantastic.  (See my “Tips and Tricks” post on how I made the rose pin for more details.)
